In a recent media note, the Department of State (DOS) has announced that the 2014 Diversity Visa Program (DV-2014) will open at noon, Eastern Daylight Time (EDT) on Tuesday, October 2, 2012, and will close at noon, EDT, on Saturday, November 3, 2012. No entries will be accepted after noon, EDT, on November 3, 2012. Applicants must submit entries electronically during this registration period using the electronic DV entry form (E-DV).

For DV-2014, natives of Guatemala are now eligible to enter the program, but natives of the following countries are not eligible to apply - Bangladesh, Brazil, Canada, China (mainland-born), Colombia, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, El Salvador, Haiti, India, Jamaica, Mexico, Pakistan, Peru, Philippines, South Korea, United Kingdom (except Northern Ireland) and its dependent territories, and Vietnam.

DOS has also announced that for DV-2014, it will once again implement an online process to notify entrants of their selection, and to provide information about the immigrant visa application and interview. Beginning May 1, 2013, DV-2014 entrants will be able to use their unique confirmation number provided at registration to check online through Entry Status Check to see if their entry was selected. Successful entrants will receive instructions for how to apply for immigrant visas, and confirmation of visa interview appointments will also be made through Entry Status Check.
